XXcLusive: Rza Wants To Reunite Chris Brown & Rihanna In New Movie

Rza is slowly planning to take over Hollywood and with his upcoming remake of 1985 classic The Last Dragon, the mastermind behind the Wu-Tang Clan, has big aspirations. XXLMag.com recently chopped it up with the Abbot and he said that he wants Chris Brown and Rihanna to have roles in the film.

In fact Rza, who is one of the executive producers for the project, said he has already spoken to Brown about playing the part of lead character Leroy Green aka Bruce Leroy. “I holla’d at Chris and he seemed very interested,” Rza told XXL. “I never—I didn’t holla at Rihanna. But I holla’d at Chris one day. You know we came across each other in the studio, and I saw him at one of those award shows, and I said, ‘I really got you at the top of the list to bring this character back’ and he said—that he actually loved the character. He said he loved Bruce Lee and he’s a fan of The Last Dragon. I was like, wow, that’s cool cause there’s four of us that votes on it, but my vote is on him.”

Rza said he spoke to Chris before he was accused of assaulting former girlfriend Rihanna but that doesn’t change his mind. “[I asked him] about a month before—just before the jump off, but I’m still with it,” Rza said. “I’m still with it. Yea, I think it adds even more of a dynamic so he could do good on the screen. I’m one of those kinds of directors though. I’m one of those kind of people that loves to get dynamic.”

When asked when he plans for the movie to come out Rza replied, “I’m headed to Sony today yo.”

In other Rza movie news, the legendary Shaolin producer/MC will be appearing in the new flick Life Is Hot In Cracktown, hitting select theaters on June 26. The film, about the ills of crack cocaine in New York City during the ’90s, also stars Kerry Washington, Lara Flynn Boyle and Evan Ross. - Jesse Gissen

    WOW…that would be dope to see a remake of Last Dragon…not too enthused about the Chris/Rihanna thing tho..

  • latino heat

    yeah maybe they can do a remake of Rza’s song Domestic Violence while there at it. lol!

    • $ykotic

      Ha! That was the joint!

    • 92FS

      LOL!! So true!

  • sealsaa

    I thought it was going to be “What’s Love Got to do with it? Part 2 :D

    But yeah, I heard that Sam Jackson was playing the Harlem Shogun. This movie is going to be crazy.

      Sam Jackson? Forget that! Busta Rhymes should play the Harlem Shogun if anybody LOL

      I agree with Enlightened though, they should leave that franchise alone. That movie good just the way it is.

  • Enlightened

    Ah ha ha ha ha! That nigga said the domestic violence would add even more of a dynamic to it. For real? Like oh yeah, we can actually picture him whooping somebody’s ass – so that helps.

    On some real shit. They should leave The Last Dragon alone man. That movie is the 80s period. It’s the perfect movie for that time. I hope it doesn’t make it out. Let the classic be!

    Bow Coolie, and it would befitting to see ol’ CB kissing someones Converse [or would we be saying "Kiss my Air Force Ones?"]. It might have been Ok if he hadn’t done his Ike Turner meets Joe Jackson Performance.

  • El Tico Loco

    Busta practically auditioned to be shonuff 12 years ago he shoulda been a shoe in for that role not Samuel Jackson. I never saw Rihanna act so I don’t see the point put Lauren London fine ass on there.

    I mean, I’m just sayin’

  • vancouver

    yes Chris Brown and Rihanna would be amazing – another classic and the ratings – real winner.

  • Keyser Soze

    I say Busta Rhymes too!! Chris Brown is a bitch. I watched him on Punk’d trying to act hard. lol I hope someone knocks him out for Rihanna. That kids such a joker!!

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    I never seen busta rhymes and shonuff in the same place at the same time, so busta might be shonuff. This would be awesome, a memember of my favorite rap group and my favorite movie coming togheter! The movie is classic, but ya it doesn’t need that couple to sell it.
